    >>>No evacuations? Are you kidding?

    An Escambia County spokesperson said there were no evacuations.

    No evacuations? Are you kidding? Day cares were evacuated, businesses closed, it was a huge inconvenience to those in the are. Either this story has incorrect information or the update is lacking critical information!
